Taekyung Group announced on Aug. 22 that Chairman Kim Hae-ryun received the grand prize in innovation management from the 24th Korean Academic Society of Business Administration.
As the head of Taekyung Group, which leads the domestic inorganic chemical basic materials field, Chairman Kim has emphasized communication, innovation, data management, and R&D (research and development).
By localizing inorganic chemical basic materials, which had previously depended on imports, one after another, the group has solidified the foundation of the national key industry.
Taekyung Group has more than 70 basic materials so far, and among them, 13 products, including dry ice, liquid carbon dioxide, and quicklime, continue to rank first in Korea.
In particular, the paper production additive ‘Astra’ is the only one in the world.
In addition, ‘high-purity calcium hydroxide’, ‘eco-friendly calcareous fertilizer’ and ‘nano titanium dioxide’ are the only products in Korea.
Chairman Kim said, “Recycling carbon dioxide as a useful resource is the key to being carbon neutral. Based on continuous R&D, we will grow into a global eco-friendly material company.”
